The Everglades

By handlerstudio  
The Everglades, in South Florida are a wonder. Full of wildlife, in actuality, a very slowly flowing river. I have no idea what this bird is. I am not a birder. Anyone?

Off tomorrow afternoon for three days of sailing on the Chesapeake Bay...celebrating my eighth anniversary with my wife and a few friends over Memorial Day weekend. Hope to come back with some good Osprey photos, and if I am lucky, Bald Eagles.
